"We should work but one day a week and take the other six to enjoy the glory that is nature." Ralph Waldo Emerson
Found the key to my shackles and broke free from the cube to take advantage of the 24 C weather. A welcome relief after two days of thick fog and drizzle. Like the birds, I'm heading further South as the days go by. It was June '11 when I last passed this way.
Here's a shot from last June. It's a little fuzzy as it was taken well past sunset. Liked the dark, creepy windows. Perhaps we'll have a "scary barn" post for Halloween. There's one 'round the corner from here that would make a great movie set. It's a little daunting even during the day.
And here's the same spot now.
Will have to find out when the barn came down. Lot of wind recently, but, this was a fragile structure and would not have taken much to bring it down. I have great affection for barns and farmyards.
Signage at this part of the trail is still in progress. A few walkers with their pets and someone on horseback even though the picture suggests the trail was devoid of human life. The sun did emerge. A shirtless runner warming up. I thought his car was stuck but those were push ups he was doing. Was it 'no shirt' weather? Apparently so.
Question. Should we have a scoop policy for horses? It's the same principle, no?
Old woods feel. Nature shutting down, but, a splash of colour here and there. Which painter used the little strokes of colour? Turner? Constable? I'm going with Turner; someone will correct me.
Deep farm country. More open views on this leg and a snicket into the farmer's field.
Next stop: White Church Road- there must be a graveyard around here somewhere.
